You can park next to each of the cottages and apart from one step at the entrance all the accommodation is on the ground floor. I am sorry but the cottages have not been constructed for wheelchair users.
Escondite has a covered patio with views to the east & south with sun loungers. There's a spa/jacuzzi pool outside where you can relax and admire the view or gaze at the stars surrounded by olive trees.
Palomar has a large patio and grounds with olive & fruit trees, with views of the southern mountains.
Both cottages have their own separate grounds and patios with table, chairs and barbecue.
The pool is approx 20 meters away from Palomar and 50 meters from Escondite, it is 1.4m deep and approximately 9m x 5m at its largest. It is filtered and kept clean by the use of an ionizer and has an underwater seating area. There are 2 separate sunbathing terraces next to the pool with sun loungers and parasols plus a shower. The pool is open all year but isn't heated.
The spa for Escondite is also available all year and is heated.

2 Cottages in Orgiva, Las Alpujarras, Andalucia, Spain
About the area
The beaches at Salobreņa and Motril are 35/40 minutes by car.
How to get there
Granada airport is an hour and Malaga airport is 1 and threequarter hours away.
We would advise booking a hire car which can be collected on arrival at the airport, but you can get to Orgiva by bus or pre-arranged taxi pick up.
Orgiva with its shops, banks, bars, internet cafe and restaurants is a 20 minute walk or a few minutes drive away.
The Alhambra and the historic city of Granada is less than an hour.
The owners live a few minutes drive from the cottages.
Excellent two weeks at El Palomar. Beautiful location - very restful. Casita very comfortable. Welcome pack - great idea. Thank you for hospitality and special thanks for fixing our car! Great being able to pick lemons for our G & Ts!
Great week, our third visit to El Palomar. As comfortable welcoming and relaxing as ever; thank you for your welcoming hospitality - change nothing, no TV etc!
What an amazing week! El Escondite is all we hoped for and more! It really is as lovely and secluded as promised in the 'blurb'. We will remember the spa pool with its beautiful setting: sitting in the warm bubbles under a blue sky or a full moon with clouds passing by.
Well we've been to Orgiva many times but it's our first time at El Escondite. It's probably the best equipped casita we've stayed in and the hot tub makes all the difference when it's cold outside! After a day's walking there is nothing better than jumping into that tub! (I'll tell all my friends).
About the Owner
We've lived near Orgiva since October 1998. We came to visit friends in the May of that year, saw a house we liked, made an offer, and moved here! We're very happy that we did so.
Year property purchased: 2001
Why this location?
We bought the land in 2001 as it gave us the opportunity to design and build el Escondite, taking advantage of the wonderful views. El Palomar was originally the farmer's store but has been extended and much improved! We love the freedom of the area, the mountains and the feeling of space.
What are the unique benefits of the property?
We don't live at the cottages but our guests enjoy the views, quietness, the pools and the fruit trees. Many have said that they've had the best night's sleep for years. We live a little further down the lane, so are on hand should you need any help.
